The Greatest Kiss Of All

A miscarriage of Justice must have occurred! How could this be? No one ever heard of anything like this happening before. There wasn’t a precedent in the law books. No prior ruling had ever been made like this one.

Legal heads were spinning. The news was spreading fast. The victims of the defendant were bewildered. His family was shocked and looked at each other in disbelief. Then when reality sunk in, they wept tears of joy on each other’s shoulders.

Everyone knew the defendant was guilty. He’d even said he was. His head had hung down the whole trial. He appeared to be too ashamed to even look at anyone in the courtroom, let alone the prosecutor.

The Prosecutor was tough. His appearance was impressive. The crossed arms signaled, in body language, that his mind was made up. He was a no-nonsense kind of man. No one remembered him ever smiling. He’d never accepted a plea bargain in his life. And to make matters worse for the defendants, he’d never lost a case.

The Defense Attorney sat beside the defendant at the table. She was a lady with an easy smile and kind eyes. Her words were not harsh, but hopeful.

The trial was well publicized. The room was crowded. The press cried for his conviction. Public opinion was against the accused.

Something unexplainable happened after the Prosecutor announced to the Judge that the, “State rests.” Immediately the Defense Attorney called for a conference in the Judge’s chambers.

No one knows what went on behind those closed doors. At least no one is telling everything if they do.

A big News Conference was called. The Judge smiled a rare smile as he announced into the large bank of microphones that the defendant was being set free. No criminal charges, no probation, and no criminal record. The cameras flashed. Reporters wrote rapidly on their notepads.

Then to the astonishment of everyone, The Defense Attorney turned and quickly kissed the Prosecutor. Cameras snapped furiously, preserving the moment for all to see.

The Newspaper headlines announced: “The Defense Attorney And Prosecutor Kiss! Judge Smiles His Approval.”

The caption under the photo simply said. “Mercy And Truth Kiss Each Other. Guilty Goes Free!”
